We were in town, and thought my three adult daughters would enjoy surf lessons. I contacted the office, and John returned my call promptly. John met us on time for their lessons, and the girls had a great time. The two hours flew by, and the girls were riding waves in no time. I'd recommend Wave masters to anyone who... More

John was awesome! I was up and riding waves within 30 minutes and it only got better throughout the lesson. He was punctual, professional, fun and extremely knowledgeable.

I was up and surfing within a few tries. Personalized instruction that makes practical sense...you can't beat it. It was a big deal to me to learn to surf...and it was an incredible memory. Don't even think about trying anyone else!

After doing research on surf instructors/companies we chose Wave Masters because John didn't charge an arm and a leg for 8 children and he came with surf boards to the beach house we rented behind Taco City in south Cocoa Beach. He was an excellent choice as all kids were riding the waves within 2 hours! As a beginner surfer... More

We hired Wave Masters to teach 5 children and 2 adults how to surf. Being Canadians we don't have much surfing opportunity so no one in the party had ever tried this before. 2 teaches came out for our lesson and they were spectacular! So professional yet kept it fun for the kids and they ensured each person was able... More

My wife and I live on the beach in the Cocoa Beach area, and hired John to teach two visiting nieces how to surf, and work on improving our daughter's surfing. The three girls range in age from 11 to 19. This instruction took place over three days in August, 2014, and included sessions at Cheri Down park twice, and... More

John was awesome surf instructor. He had my 2 girls standing up riding waves before the 2 hours was over. He is very reasonably priced and he comes to you. There was a little break in which he supplied drinks and fresh fruit. I would definitely recommend him to everyone.

John was engaging, fun, and you can tell that he really likes to share his love of surfing. He had our two 13 year old girls up on their first waves. I really appreciated his celebration of every wave they rode and by the time our two hours were up they were getting up on the waves by themselves. We... More

We were beyond thrilled with our experience! My daughter has always wanted to try surfing so we contacted John and set up a time. We ended up having a flat tire and couldn't make our lesson. John completely worked around our vacation schedule and was kind enough to move our lesson to the next day we requested.He was so patient,... More

Think personal trainer for surf instruction. Johns passion for surfing is infectious. He adjusted his curriculum to the changing conditions and connects on a personal level with his students. DO NOT GET NEAR THE WATER without seeing Wave Masters first!
